Relay for Life: Point Cook

I also wish to recognise all of those who supported the Point Cook Relay for Life event. I enjoy the deep privilege of being the patron of this fundraising event, and I am very pleased to advise the house that this year the Point Cook Relay for Life raised over $52 000 to help continue the important research activities undertaken by Cancer Council Victoria. I would particularly like to recognise the Point Cook Relay for Life organising committee, which is made up of John Ballestrino, Marie Craw, Paul Rourke, Kate Parsons, Kerry Keyes, Phil Dugo, Alysia Keyes, Faye Lockwood-Rourke, Bev Morrissey, Jan Koh, Luisa Ballestrino, Pamela Tanner, Kate Auhl, Mackenzie Lockwood-Rourke, Bill Craw, Sharen Cations and Kate Rankin. These are amazing people from an amazing community. This was the community’s second relay for life. I look forward to bigger and better things next year, but we are deeply proud of and grateful for all of the work they do.
